DJ Qualls, Eliza Dushku, Zooey Deschanel, Lyle Lovett, Eddie
can The New Guy best be described. Let's start with "yeeeeeecccchhhh!".
To just say that it sucks is nowhere near harsh enough. We haven't
seen a movie we enjoyed less in a long long time.
probably chuckled at the trailers for this movie. That's because
the trailers show Eddie Griffin. Unfortunately Eddie only has a
bit part in this movie and is probably on screen for less than 10
minutes total. The movie does have a few funny bits, you saw most
of them in the trailer. We did laugh outloud a few times during
the movie. Unfortunately what was on screen between those laughs
was absolutely painful to watch.
is a movie and a script that just doesn't work. DJ Qualls, the geek
from Road Trip, stars here. He's again
playing a geek. Deciding he needs a change he learns some lessons
from a convict, played by Griffin, on how to get people to leave
him alone. In some convoluted way that isn't really explained he
goes back and forth to prison for training at will. That's far from
the last plot hole in this film.
a comedy we can overlook a lot, as long as it is funny. This one
is not, some of the bits fall flat and make you want to look away
from the screen they're so bad. The movie tries hard, Qualls does
an excellent job of creating the likable geek, and there are some
really cool cameos throughout the movie. But the bottom line is
it is not funny. However, I must say the other 3 people who were
in the theater were laughing a lot more than our reviewers. We speculate
that they may have been high, which would've made this movie much
more entertaining. Unfortunately they didn't share.
this one. We have reviewers actually threatening to quit if we make
them do the DVD review for this film. One was quoted as saying that
you couldn't get him into a room playing this movie if you hooked
his testicles to a sling shot and fired them at the door. It gets
one star only because we have no lower rating.
But guns should be issued to the audience so they could put
themselves out of their misery.
But the movie may still scar you for life.

every joke that works, another ten come across as just stupid.
